  1. Mine too, that's why I am trying to keep it this way someone wrote here that his sex life got hurt due to uncontrolled farting. Another person wrote that going to the restroom 4-5 a day and leaving really bad odor is a problem. So im asking if this is something beyond regular poop smell.
  2. Reading this forum, i get the feeling that ALL people that went through a DS get this issue and they all mention it as a major discomfort. Is it? All?

    Vitamin issues after DS

    MsMocie, DS has the best weight loss and the most sustainable one. But it has two negatives: smelly body "outcomes" to say it politely, and the need to take vitamins for life. But...the fear if gaining all the weight back is worse.

    Vitamin issues after DS

    I agree and wish i could. I lost 73 and regained 30. Not a big jump. Just step by step, little by little. Sleeve expanded and allowes for regular meals now so its harder. Tried to lose it back, but i think i need to see someone weekly for the support and long term work on ur goal. Even at the lowest point, i wasnt at the target weight. I will schedule a surgery for the summer and will try my best till then.

    Questions about DS surgery

    You got me on the part of sparying your butt
  6. I know DS is more complicated to operate, but I am less worried it. I am 5 yrs post sleeve and gaimed back half of the loss in the last year. Feel bad. Look bad. Domt feel good about myself. Am considering resleeve or DS revision and I am only worried but Vitamin deficiency with DS. It looks like a more suatainable option. I am worried about future ability to take regular pills when I am old and need them. Worried about mulabsorbtion of minerals. Can you please she your life stories after DS and your experience with the above issues. Im a male 51 years old
